Marble Cheesecake Brownies

Cheesecake and chocolate always strike me as the perfect combination for a very good reason : It is.

If you’ve ever had those cheesecake brownies made from a box before, you’re in for an amazing sight. The thickness and appearance of these brownies make them an instant show stopper. The deal is cinched when you take a bite and find that they taste every bit as good, if not better than they look! Thick, rich, chocolaty, flavor FILLED, decadent cheesecake brownies!

Wilton Brownie Fun

This recipe is another one from the Wilton Brownie Fun! Book. Its absolutely filled with mouth watering recipes and over the top cute ideas for decorating and serving brownies!

I’ve been carrying my copy around like a kid with their blankie. Its already dog eared and brownie scented! For more information on the book, simply click here

Let’s make some brownies!!!

You’ll need: Vanilla, sugar, cream cheese, eggs, margarine or butter, baking powder, all purpose flour, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and milk chocolate chips.

The recipe calls for Almond flavoring as well. If you enjoy almond flavoring you’ll want to use it.

My mother never used almond in her baked goods and I think that is why it tends to stand out to me so drastically whenever I taste it. I’ve baked cookies with almond flavoring before and it just doesn’t appeal to my family. However, my sister in law (Hi Stacey!) loves it. Her mother used it often in her baked goods. Talking to others, I really think that’s the key to whether you love almond flavoring or have an aversion to it. I just added a little extra vanilla in its place.

dscn4665

Heat in microwave until melted. Stir up well.

dscn4667

It now looks like brownie batter.

If you don’t lick that spoon when we’re done, I’m disowning you.

dscn4666

Spray your pan with nonstick cooking spray.

dscn4678

Alternately drop spoonfuls of cheesecake and brownie batter into your prepared pan.

I used an 1/8 cup measuring cup to do this with.

dscn4679

Swirl that up a bit by dragging a spoon or knife through it.

How gorgeous is that? The little chocolate chips in the cheesecake batter add the perfect touch.

Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes, or until done.

Remove from pan using the Wilton Brownie Lifter which is perfectly angled to get brownies and other desserts out of the pan with ease. Its angled, has a chiseled edge, and dishwasher safe! Even my first brownie came out perfect.

      Alright Ronda, now I studied nutrition and therapeutic dietetics in college so I’m going to be completely objective here.

      Calcium is an integral part of every diet, especially in women. As we grow older, our bones tend to lose this valuable mineral and we have to take great care in making sure it is replenished.

      Seeing as how a good 50% of these brownies contain cheese (which we all know is calcium rich!)I not only recommend but urge you to eat these for breakfast and any other time you want them – especially if you are female!

      Besides, if you are craving them your body is likely pleading for more calcium. I’m sure that’s all you really wanted them for anyway. ~grins~
      Gratefully,
      Christy

    Girl! I am never going to lose weight if I continue to read your blog!! I just can’t resist trying the yummy recipes you share. These brownies look so good that I will probably bake them this weekend. We are expecting a very soggy weekend, so what could be better than a nice pan of brownies? Thanks for sharing!

  2. Sonya says

    Mmm… That’s my kind of brownie! I have to find some people I can bake these for! Even when my husband was eating carbs he didn’t like anything extraneous on his brownies. Just plain brownie! One of those dropped on his head things, ya know! And I love almond flavoring!

  3. Vickie says

    Girl, u know if I get fat I’m gonna have to blame u for it, huh? Oh My Goodness! I looooooooove you!! I love brownies I love cheese cake! I love you again! OMG!!!! *wipes my keyboard cause drool has gone every where*

  4. Trixie says

    Ok Christy, I always bought Gold Medal flour before. Today I took your advice and I came home with the Great Value Brand. And if you say it’s ok, then it will be.
    This maybe the first thing I bake with it. These look so good.
    Thanks for all your works, we know your a very busy lady.

  5. JIM-49 says

    Well Christy,they are missing something “Very Important”,about 1 gallon of good and cold milk,”D”of coarse,need that Calcium!! They do look good,will have to check them out,wouldn’t want anyone to get sick,so we will make the sacrifice,and taste most of the pan,before taking that chance of others getting sick!! Keep that cold weather up there!! Jim-49

    I just realized that I have a package of cream cheese leftover from Christmas and it will expire at the end of the month if I don’t use it! Can’t have that! It is fate! I have to make these brownies! I think I will use all semi-sweet chocolate chips, though, because I already have that and don’t want to buy an extra bag of milk chocolate chips.

  7. Joann Drye says

    I think I must rush to the cabinet and be sure I have all the things to make these today, haha.. if my kids have not borrowed my chips or cream cheese I know I am ok, haha… yum yum.. and like you if my sugar levels would let me I would just sit and eat it.. why bake it at all? haha..

    Hugs Jo in Oklahoma

    Hello. Everyone in our family loves cheesecake & chocolate. Its snowing here now and they’re calling for it to be a big one. Since I have all the ingredients on hand I think the kids and I will be making these tomorrow while watching the snow. They sound sooooo yummy!! Thanks Christy for another great one.

  9. Sonya says

    OMG, y’all! These are so good!! I made them last night along with a marble cake to use with the peanut butter icing which I have to make later today! As long as I had the oven heated up to 350 and that cream cheese in the fridge that was going to expire, I figured I might as well do the brownies, too! I woke up early this morning and the thought of the brownies wouldn’t leave my mind. I got up and ate a couple straight out of the pan before I even made a cup of coffee! I crammed the rest in a Rubbermaid container to take with the cake to my parents’ house. There’s some family visiting from North Alabama, including my aunt who practically lives in the kitchen. Maybe I’ll convince them that I actually can cook! It’s gonna be a decadent, carb-filled weekend thanks to Southern Plate!

    So I have two variations on these to pass along.First is cherry cheesecake brownies,I would leave out the chips in these,and when you put the cheesecake batter on the brownie batter,you spoon cherry pie filling on top of them and swirl it all together.It’s amazingly good.
    Second is a new experiment I tried today!:)!You take the cheesecake batter,add2-3 tbsp of cocoa,stir that up good,add the chips and about a 1/2 cup of coconut.Plop it on top of brownie batter and swirl it all in.Bake it the same way and they come out just awesome.
    In my house if the brownies cool without half the pan already gone then I must’ve did something wrong.Lol.
    Y’all enjoy!!!
